He has not been around kids much. he has never interacted with dogs or cats. Behavior Pugsley does not pee or poop indoors and does not bark and does not destroy household items. because he is deaf loud noises do no bother him. He is not bothered by having his food, treats or toys touched or taken. He does not like baths and realy dislikes having his face touched during baths and he will snap. He is fine with being brushed but does not like it coming near his head or face, he will struggle. New Family Pugsley is calm and quiet and the only sounds he really makes are whimpers. He has a low level of activity at home. Unless he is hungry or wants to be walked he rarely seeks attention. He is very house trained and well behaved when left alone at home. He knows that when you flick your wrist and point downwards that that means sit but beacuse of his leg he has a hard time sitting sometimes. He does not do well with stairs and often cannot go down them without falling. He does not pull hard on the leash and is not walked off leash or will run away. he is fed a variety of dry foods twice a day. Intake Pugsley is calm and allows handling.
12/12/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Fifteen year old Pugsley, a large fawn Pug was surrendered to us as his family could not afford his care anymore….Pugsley is a handsome gent, not really overweight like so many Pugs are, well dressed but hard of hearing, arthritic and missing a number of teeth… The price to pay as years add up to your life… His hinds are a bit stiff but he walks quite fast, sniffs a lot his new surroundings, does his business during our stroll and takes politely some soft treats from my hand. He does not show particular interest in other pooches met on the way. Right now, Pugsley is quite lost. .A senior, deaf, a family dog, all alone in a huge new world he is not familiar with…..” It is a pretty large pill to swallow….” Pugsley is said to be a quiet pooch, not demanding , well mannered and housetrained. We so wish for him to spend the rest of what should be his golden years and the holidays on a comfi pillow and not a kennel…An adopter fond and knowledgeable of elderly pets is needed for Pugsley the Pug…I bet that a new home will pick his spirit up and maybe the start of a ” new” Pugsley… Come and meet him soon at the Manhattan Care center

ENERGY LEVEL: RECOMMENDATIONS: Experience (Suitable for an adopter with a previous amount of dog experience) _X_No children (under 13) Potential challenges: _X_Fearful/potential for defensive aggression (Pugsley has been observed to display fearful behavior during his stay at our care centers; at times will avoid interaction and shy away from direct-touch. Pugsley easily startles and is made uncomfortable by loud noises and sudden movement and will display proper warning signals as well as increase distance from anything that may present a threat. We cannot be certain if any other behavior is suppressed as a result of his environment. A period of decompression is advised before introduction or exposure to new and unfamiliar situations. Force-free, reward based training is advised.)
